After having a couple of hectic months in our day to day life, Finally, we (me and my wify) were able to spend a couple of days away from our day jobs. Both of us came to an agreement that our destination should be a beach destination (Of course, Wife suggested & I agreed). So it was decided to go for Trincomalee, one of the major resort port city in Eastern province of Sri Lanka.
Our home for the holiday was Jungle Beach by Uga Escape, undoubtedly one of the best hotel that both us stayed. It took almost 06 hours to travel from Colombo to Trincomalee. Driving in Colombo is not the best experience that anyone could ask for, But it is a completely different story when you go out from the city. Empty roads – Zero traffic gives you a different experience.
We arrived at the Jungle Beach around 02.00 p.m. and we had a warm welcome. After a very smooth check-in process, we were taken to the place which was going to be our home for next couple of days. We stayed in Jungle Cluster Cabin, It was a cluster villa with a private pool.
This pool is shared by 03 cluster cabins. If there are no other guests in other two cabins, It is your lucky day. You can have the pool for yourself and we were lucky to have it only for ourselves 🙂
All the meals they served at Jungle Beach were on set meal basis. If you are Sri Lankan, You may not like it, because we normally opt for buffet menus. But the food was so good in here, You don’t need to think about a buffet. They had options for Sri Lankan, Asian, and Italian foods.
They have a special breakfast platter called Uga Breakfast platter, which was the best meal for me. It came with so many different foods including fruits, sweets.
Trincomalee is a town with various attractions and so many things to do. Pigeon Island, Koneswaram Kovil and Marble Beach are some of the few attractions. The hotel offers you some activities on each day to entertain visitors. Also If you don’t like to explore the town, Hotel itself could be a good option chill.
Friendliness of the staff is definitely something that should be on this post. They were all really helpful and always had a smile on their face, not something that you can experience in most of the hotels. Everything was unique in this hotel and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Uga.
